Why do we use Rice?
We use rice because we found the heat retention to be the best, and the rice has the most pleasant feel. We found the dried pinto beans or whole peas to smell beany (not so pleasant or relaxing) and Flaxseed was even worse, after just a few heatings they were starting to smell a little rancid.
